We booked a tour to the Vatican Museum and Saint peters basilica, but just used the first portion through the Vatican Museum, as we have been able to get into Saint Peters the day before. Had we been continuing on to Saint Peters, I would have been disappointed that the tour didn’t stay longer in the museum, but because we left halfway we were able to go and see the other artworks, including those by Raphael. We were also very happy that our tickets allowed us to skip the line, because it was a very hot day out and the line was around the block!
